2. Why did you write "9/11 Averted"?
In 2013, I wrote a short story called "What If 9/11 Never Happened". That story was about three cousins named Logan Dara, Dicky Michaelson, and Andrea Elan. They inadvertently stopped the 9/11 attacks from happening when they read a news article detailing the attacks and their own deaths.
Of course, this happened during the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. As such, many people who read it had something to say about the story. Most comments said that it would have been better if 9/11 had never happened, but we can't change the past.
And it would have been nice if we could go back in time and prevent 9/11 from happening. (Then it would mean that we would have changed many other things, such as Harry Potter not being popular and President George W. Bush being forced to serve only one term as U.S. president.) But that's just wishful thinking.
Anyway, the main story is what happened AFTER Logan, Dicky, and Andrea (along with their cousin Sean Michael Rowes) stopped 9/11 from happening. Nineteen men who would have attacked the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, and the White House were arrested before they could carry out the attacks. As the world finds out abut the arrests and breathes a collective sigh of relief, the cousins must deal with not only the evil terror mastermind Osama bin Laden, but they must deal with other bad people, Harry Potter fans, and people who wished that the September 11, 2001 attacks happened. They also deal with pulling the plug on Harry Potter mania before it happens and the tabloids' relentless pursuit of the cousins who saved the United States.
Next week, I'll be tossing out details about the story and how it led to the country that we should be living in today. If you want to know more about this series, please comment below or subscribe.
